Community Profile

This project is part of Bridge Water Project’s program in Western Kenya. What follows is direct from them:

PROPOSED PROJECT:

The proposed Endeleza water project is situated in Eshikufu village and it is  a hand dug well developed by installing 3M diameter concrete casing covered with 4inch concrete slab and installed a MARK II pump. The well was completed in the year 2002 and served the community well until 2007 when it got spoilt, the community found someone who impersonated that he can repair the pump instead he disappeared with the parts. The community then had no option other than go back to collect stream water for their domestic use.

CURRENT WATER SOURCE:

This community gets its water from Omolo stream located 2km from the community and it is a very steep valley where as the turbidity value is 85 below the WHO recommendation.

POPULATION:

The community has a population of 40 to 50 households approximately 300 people who depend on this water source for domestic use.

HYGIENE AND SANITATION:

At least every home visited there is a composite pit, latrines and cloth lines, clean water facilities and almost most homes have bathrooms and no dish racks and washing points.

PROJECT BENEFICIARIES:

The project will greatly benefit the Endeleza c.b.o and the community at large.

ASSESSING THE NEED:

There is need to rehabilitated this well by installing an Afridev pump so as to help the community access quality water that is sustainable.

WATER COMMITTEE:

The Bridge Water project staff will strengthen the already existing Endeleza Community water committee. During the community education, the committee will be taught how to manage the improved water supply to ensure sustainability.

Project Type

Well rehabilitation is one of the most cost effective ways to bring clean, safe water to a community.  Sometimes it involves fixing a broken hand pump, other times it means sealing a hand dug well to prevent it from being contaminated.  These repairs, and often time total replacements, coupled with sanitation and hygiene training make a huge impact in communities.
